Current Research

The study of formation and evolution of stars and planets is a key research field in Astronomy. With multi-wavelength polarization observations, which enable us to obtain the information on circumstellar structures and magnetic field structures, we are revealing the formation and evolution of stars and planetary systems. Especially, by conducting the first systematic circular polarimetric observations that are quite unique in the world, we are also approaching the origin of homochirality, which is a special feature of life on Earth. For this purpose, we are doing the development and design of a polarimeter for 1-m class to 8-m class ground-based and space-borne telescopes.
